Your Opportunity to Pay Tribute to Harry
As you may know, on July 16, 2001, it will have been exactly 20 years since
Harry Chapin died tragically on the Long Island Expressway. Fans from around
the world will be honoring Harry this year with various events, and I wanted
to share one of them with you here, and give you the chance to honor Harry's
memory and great work.
As you may know, in addition to being a prolific singer-songwriter, Harry was
very involved in the anti-hunger movement. He believed that one person can
make a difference. World Hunger Year (WHY), the organization Harry
co-founded in 1975, continues today to make a difference.
Each year, WHY hosts a Chapin Awards Dinner, honoring media and grassroots
anti-hunger groups that have a made a difference. This year's dinner is June
4th in New York City.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Harry's passing, and, more
importantly, to celebrate the story of a life, we're going to feature
a special tribute page within the printed journal for this year's Chapin
Awards dinner, featuring salutes from Harry's fans.
For a donation to World Hunger Year, you can have your name and/or a quote
included on the Harry Chapin tribute page.
Here's how it works. Simply visit World Hunger Year's web page (see the link
below), and make your secure on-line donation to be included in the journal:
$25 donation: your name listed on the page
$50 donation: up to four lines of copy - about 100 character spaces
(including your name)
$100 donation: up to ten lines of copy - about 250 character spaces
(including your name)
If more than 10 lines/250 characters are requested, contact me
separately for more info.
This is a great opportunity to honor Harry's memory and "do
something" at the same time. You can include a quote from your
favorite Chapin song, recall a favorite memory, or in your own words,
tell what Harry means to you. It's our chance to show that Harry's
legacy lives on.
It's easy to participate! Simply use a credit card to make your on-
line donation and indicate the verbiage you want included in the
journal. We'll even send you a copy of the journal after the June
